The Sailing Ship by Luther F. Beecher (1813–1903)

What is dying? I am standing on the seashore. A ship sails to the morning breeze and starts for the ocean. She is an object and I stand watching her Till at last she fades from the horizon, And someone at my side says, “She is gone!” Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all; She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her, And just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination. The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her; And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “She is gone”, There are others who are watching her coming, And other voices take up a glad shout, “There she comes” – and that is dying.

Being gone from Seattle we were caught completely by surprise that our friend Doug had passed away. Doug had a personality that was larger than life. He made friends wherever his travels took him, and would often do anything he could to help those in need. He will be surely missed. All of our thoughts and prayers go out to all of his friends and family. All our love - Terry and Rhonda Tyge

It was a sad day and took us completely by surprise that our friend Doug had passed away. Doug was bigger than life and made friends wherever his travels took him. He would help anyone that needed help, and wanted nothing in return. He will surely be missed! He was a great friend to the two of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.
